About Joan"Jo Ann" Marie Rash Smith

Born in Borger, Hutchinson County, Texas 16 September 1944. Married Ray Edward Smith on 9th of June 1964 in Lenoir, Caldwell County, North Carolina, United States. Mom told us, she met daddy while he was in basic training USAF in Amarillo. Dad told me he joined just before the end of Korean Conflict(1951) and served during all of Vietnam(injured in service 1971). I requested his military record and have read them. I do remember Las Vegas, Nevada, Nellis AFB in '69, and Wichita, Kansas in '72. Back an forth between N. Carolina and Texas for a year. Dad got his discharge papers in '75, he retired Staff Sargent USAF 1951-1975, we were in Pampa, Texas '73, got into North Carolina about '74. I have done alot of genealogy.
Geni and Heritage help, alot easier than having to hunt and search for documents that are difficult to obtain. I am grateful to have such great parents.
My earliest memory is Las Vegas, and the Boulder highway, dad stationed at Nellis AFB. Had to be '68 or '69. I remember Wichita, Kansas in '71 and '72. All those tornadoes cannot forget. Remember some things about Pampa and Amarillo. It is a journey U.S. Air Force, born into it.
So, mom and dad married in '64, mom was stationed in Lakenheath with dad in '66 and '67. Stationed at Nellis, AFB, Nevada in '69. Wichita, Kansas in '71-'72. Tornadoes came through we went to Amarillo stayed with grandparents. '73 moved to North Carolina.
